Our Mission


Graduation Rate

We take a look at the number of diplomas received from students who attend STEM and Non-STEM schools to try and find a correlation between attending a STEM academy and higher graduation rates

SOL Scores

We examine the SOL scores from STEM and Non-STEM schools to try to prove the that the average SOL scores from STEM schools tend to be higher

Post Sec Enrollment

We hope to demonstrate that those who attend STEM academies tend to have a higher admittance rate to colleges and universities
